THE RUNDOWN: Wednesday, January 15

Wednesday has two season premieres. FOX brings back the newest revamp of American Idol with another new judging panel. Though I feel like the year to year declines could be better as the season goes on, last year premiered to a strong 17.9 million viewers/6.0 demo. I just don't see this season premiere coming anywhere close to last year. ABC has the season premiere of Suburgatory back in the timeslot where it was a hit in its first season in 2011-12. I think it will be right around where Back in the Game was for most of its run. Elsewhere, it's hard to know if Idol can still have any impact but Law & Order: SVU may take a hit from the Idol/Criminal Minds combo and that could hurt week two of Chicago PD.
